Carbonzero Offsets Emissions from Stéphane Dion's Leader's Tour

    TORONTO, Sept. 7 /CNW/ - Carbonzero announced today that it will be
offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions produced by the Liberal Party of
Canada's Leader's Tour for the federal election.
    "Carbonzero is pleased to be working with the Liberal Party, in
quantifying and neutralizing the greenhouse gas emissions that will be emitted
from the upcoming Leader's Tour," said Carbonzero spokesperson Steven Rieck.
"It's encouraging to see politicians are taking responsibility for their
emissions and we hope that it will translate to strong action on climate
change after the November election."
    The offsets purchased by the Liberal Party of Canada will be directed by
Carbonzero to a Quebec project which replaces inefficient gas boilers in
heating systems with new units employing heating controls and new energy
efficient piping systems.
    Additionally, the project includes new solar heating collectors and
retrofits the buildings to allow heat recovery from domestic wastewater, and
switches heat generation systems from natural gas to electricity.
